    9.21: How do I use MIME to make an attachment to a mail message?

    This answer is extracted directly from the "MIME::Lite" documentation.
    Create a multipart message (i.e., one with attachments).

    use MIME::Lite;

    ### Create a new multipart message:
    $msg = MIME::Lite->new(
    From =>'',
    To =>'',
    Cc =>', ',
    Subject =>'A message with 2 parts...',
    Type =>'multipart/mixed'
    );

    ### Add parts (each "attach" has same arguments as "new"):
    $msg->attach(Type =>'TEXT',
    Data =>"Here's the GIF file you wanted"
    );
    $msg->attach(Type =>'image/gif',
    Path =>'aaa000123.gif',
    Filename =>'logo.gif'
    );

    $text = $msg->as_string;

    "MIME::Lite" also includes a method for sending these things.

    $msg->send;

    This defaults to using sendmail but can be customized to use SMTP via
    Net::SMTP.
